Hiya!

Just 2 quick questions that i may ask which will help me solve for my problems i am working on.

1) In order to double the avg speed of molecules in a simple gas, the temp(in K) must be double also right?

2) And if a ideal gas is compressed slowly to 1/2 its origianl volume with no temp change then the avg speed also is 1/2.

i cant find where i read that at but working on these two problems i have i want to make sure that these 2 questions i am asking you guys are right so i can answer my two prblems i am working on.

Thanks!
